Summary - New: 3rd Edition

Pupils begin this unit with an introduction to the Scratch programming environment, and by reverse- engineering some existing games. They then progress to planning and developing their own game, learning to incorporate variables, procedures (using the Broadcast function), lists and operators. They should be able to create a fully working game with lives, scoring and some randomisation of objects. Finally they will learn to test and debug their programs.

What people say...

[The KS3 units are]..."very useful especially as most of my colleagues are new to computing. Its great having a starting point and guidance on assessment. Theory at KS3 is a new concept for most but it is actually going down well and adding purpose to the lessons."

Mr J Pritchett. Head of Computing, Brookfield Community School

We’re really pleased with the Python and GameMaker units especially. Thank you for making such great resources.

Joel Arda. Head of ICT and Computer Science, Rivers Academy West London
